Anderson has own Morgan with a 12 to 1 advantage when they race. Anderson was out of the gate first and never looked back for the win and he will have lane choice over Coughlin in the semifinal. Morgan with violent tire shake and you could read the Lucas on the side of his car. He did a great job keeping that car off the wall.

Naylor bet ates the only time they have raced. Naylor with a lot of tire shake and clicked it off...Yates made a quick move toward the centerline, but was able to reel it in and moves on to the semifinal.

The last time the Pro Stock number one qualifier won here was when Darrell Alderman did in 1994, so the jinx lives on.
